The only thing hotter than the recent weather is southwestern Ontario is the three-year-old pacing colt Sportsline, who extended his winning streak to nine on Saturday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park.

Sportsline sparred with a number of older rivals in a $19,000 conditioned event, and after being treated to a two-hole trip for the majority of the mile he launched a late bid and won in going away fashion for driver Trevor Henry.

The son of Sportswriter-Angel In Disguise chopped out the opening quarter in :27.2 before giving way to race favourite Tyga Hanover. That sophomore in turn sliced out middle splits of :54.3 and 1:23.4 before being hauled down in the closing strides by Sportsline. He used a :26.4 closing quarter to win by 1-1/2 lengths over Tyga Hanover in 1:50.4. Third prize went to Fast N First.

Trainer Jim Watt shares ownership on the talented sophomore with Harry Parrott of Goderich, Ont. The partners watched the pacer win for the 16th time in his career. He now boasts a bankroll of $94,175.

Carsons Shadow earned a new lifetime mark of 1:50.1 when he catapulted off cover en route to winning an $18,000 conditioned assignment for driver Jody Jamieson and trainer Vicki Gregg.

The three-year-old son Shadow Play-Carsons Ladyluck watched Better Moonon Over and The Regulator take turns on the lead through fractions of :25.4, :54.2 and 1:23 before Carsons Shadow stormed home in :26.1 to win by a length over Sugartown. Balder Son was third.

David Carson of Listowel, Ont. bred and owns the sophomore who improved his 2019 record to 5-1-0 from 10 attempts with the win. The $9,000 payday lifted the pacer’s lifetime earnings to $52,272.

Century Farroh steamrolled to an impressive 1:49.4 score in a $26,000 conditioned event for the team of driver Sylvain Filion and trainer Dr. Ian Moore.

Filion hustled the three-year-old son of Mach Three-Beachy Girl to the lead from Post 5, and they wound up being prompted by Big Bang Boom through first-half fractions of :26.1 and :53.3. Big Bang Boom backed away going into the final turn, and that sent Bronx Seelster three-wide to come after Century Farroh to the three-quarter pole in 1:22.2. Stag Party enjoyed a two-hole trip behind Century Farroh, but even he could only watch that colt step away in the deep stretch. Century Farroh cruised to the comfortable win over Stag Party and Royal Renegade.

Ratchford Stable NS of North Sydney, NS owns Century Farroh who is now a seven-time winner from eight attempts this season. His victory pushed his lifetime earnings over $300,000.

Seaswift Joy N toyed with the foes she sparred with in this week’s edition of the $30,000 Fillies & Mares Preferred Pace.

Doug McNair hustled the Tony Alagna trainee to the lead from Post 7, and the six-year-old daughter of Bettors Delight-Swift Belle cruised through fractions of :26.2, :56 and 1:24.3 before rocketing home in :26 to win by 1-1/2 lengths over Kendall Seelster in 1:50.3. Cousin Mary rounded out the Trifecta ticket.

Brad Grant of Milton, Ont. owns the 21-time winner who owns an eye-catching record of 10-1-1 from 17 attempts this season. The lion’s share of the purse lifted her lifetime earnings to $290,089.

After sitting fifth for most of the mile in the $34,000 Preferred Pace, Easy Lover Hanover stormed home in :26.2 to win in 1:49.3 for the duo of driver Doug McNair and trainer Ben Wallace.

The six-year-old son of Somebeachsomewhere-Easy Go Go watched Physicallyinclined carve out fractions of :26, :54.1 and 1:22.1, but it was Easy Lover Hanover who offered up the most late pace en route to posting the neck decision over Physicallyinclined. American Hustle came on strong to finish third.

Brad Grant of Milton, Ont. celebrated his second Preferred victory on the program following Seaswift Joy N’s score in the distaff division. Easy Lover Hanover won for the third time this season and for the 37th time in his career. He’s banked just shy of $870,000 to date.
